Happy Birthday!

Today is my 28th Birthday! To celebrate I thought I would reflect on 7 great things that happened while I was 27.
I ran my first marathon and loved it!

I graduated from law school!

My girlfriends from college (minus a few who sadly couldn't make it) and I went on our annual girl's trip. This year we went to Scottsdale. I am so happy we started this tradition.

I was the maid of honor in my sister-in-laws wedding!

I surprised Kevin with an impromptu weekend getaway to Chicago. On his quest to visit every baseball stadium in the country we caught a game at Wrigley Field.

We added Victory to the family!

I ran marathon #2 and can't wait for #3.

What an awesome year! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful memories.

Then, this morning when I went to get the mail I had a card and a $25.00 gift card to Starbucks waiting for me. Awesome way to start the day! While I will spend the majority of my day studying (life goes on) I am breaking early today and treating myself to a mani/pedi and my family is coming up tonight for dinner.

On the workout front I have been diligent in doing my "widdle while you work" exercises. It is the perfect thing to break up the day and it always gives me a little boost of energy to keep going right when I start fading. Today, I am headed to spinning at noon and hopefully a 3 miler on the treadmill.

I am looking forward to a great day!
